OFFICIAL: Assiouty Sport secure promotion to the Premier League

Assiouty Sport have secured promotion to the Egyptian Premier League at the second time of asking with a 2-1 win over Beni Suef on Thursday.

The Assiut-based side were relegated from the Egyptian Premier League in 2015, winning only two games from 38 to finish 19th with 16 points, 31 points away from the safe zone.

Assiouty sealed the promotion with five games to spare, as second-place Sohag are 15 points behind them and played one more game. They became the first side to achieve promotion this season after winning 21 games, drawing five, and losing only once in group A of the second division league this season.

Assiouty Sport were so close to get promoted last season, but they suffered a defeat to Nasr Lel Taa’deen in a decisive game, that made the latter secure the promotion.

It will become Assiouty’s second season ever in the Egyptian Premier League, as the club were only founded in 2008, less than 10 years ago.
